The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. It is the foundation and source of the legal authority underlying the existence of the United States of America and the Federal Government of the United States. It provides the framework for the organization of the United States Government. The document defines the three main branches of the government: The legislative branch with a bicameral Congress, an executive branch led by the President, and a judicial branch headed by the Supreme Court. Besides providing for the organization of these branches, the Constitution outlines obligations of each office, as well as provides what powers each branch may exercise. It also reserves numerous rights for the individual states, thereby establishing the United States' federal system of government. It is the shortest and oldest written constitution of any major sovereign state.<br /><br />The United States Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, by the Constitutional Convention (or Constitutional Congress[citation needed]) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and later ratified by conventions in each U.S. state in the name of "The People"; it has since been amended twenty-seven times, the first ten amendments being known as the Bill of Rights. The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union was actually the first constitution of the United States of America. The U.S. Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation as the governing document for the United States after being ratified by nine states. The Constitution has a central place in United States law and political culture. The handwritten, or "engrossed", original document penned by Jacob Shallus is on display at the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington, D.C.

Good legal writing wins court cases. It its first edition, The Winning Brief proved that the key to writing well is understanding the judicial readership. Now, in a revised and updated version of this modern classic, Bryan A. Garner explains the art of effective writing in 100 concise, practical, and easy-to-use sections. Covering everything from the rules for planning and organizing a brief to openers that can capture a judge's attention from the first few words, these tips add up to the most compelling, orderly, and visually appealing brief that an advocate can present.<br /> In Garner's view, good writing is good thinking put to paper. "Never write a sentence that you couldn't easily speak," he warns-and demonstrates how to do just that. Beginning each tip with a set of quotable quotes from experts, he then gives masterly advice on building sound paragraphs, drafting crisp sentences, choosing the best words ("Strike pursuant to from your vocabulary."), quoting authority, citing sources, and designing a document that looks as impressive as it reads.<br /> Throughout, he shows how to edit for maximal impact, using vivid before-and-after examples that apply the basics of rhetoric to persuasive writing. Filled with examples of good and bad writing from actual briefs filed in courts of all types, The Winning Brief also covers the new appellate rules for preparing federal briefs. Constantly collecting material from his seminars and polling judges for their preferences, the second edition delivers the same solid guidelines with even more supporting evidence.<br /> Including for the first time sections on the ever-changing rules of acceptable legal writing, Garner's new edition keeps even the most seasoned lawyers on their toes and writing briefs that win cases. An invaluable resource for attorneys, law clerks, judges, paralegals, law students and their teachers, The Winning Brief has the qualities that make all of Garner's books so popular: authority, accessibility, and page after page of techniques that work. If you're writing to win a case, this book shouldn't merely be on your shelf--it should be open on your desk.

Using a Memory Palace Specifically Designed for Memorizing the Law & Its Precedents<br /><br />If you'd like to improve your ability to learn and memorize legal terminology by as much as 100%, 200%, even 300% (or more) ... using simple memory techniques that you can learn in 15-20 minutes (or less), then this may be the most important book that you will ever read.<br /><br />Believe it or not, it really doesn't matter if you think you have a good memory or not.<br /><br />The information in this book will teach you:<br /><br />* Why memory is like a bicycle everyone can ride (with some minor personal adjustments).<br /><br />* The real reason why you should ever be squeamish about using memorization techniques so that you can recall legal terminology and precedents with ease.<br /><br />* Why and how some of the most famous memory skills are applicable to learning any subject, especially the law.<br /><br />* How you can easily create a 26 "letter location" memory system based around the alphabet to establish "legal fluency."<br /><br />* Unique techniques that will have you literally "tuning in" on the law and its terminology.<br /><br />* How to separate and organize legal terminology in the most effective manner for memorization.<br /><br />* Two secret ways you can use relaxation to aid the memorization process.

None of these techniques are rocket science.<br /><br />Frankly, if you can memorize a short email address or the name of a movie, then you can use this system to memorize legal terminology and precedents.<br /><br />But there's really no time to lose.<br /><br />Every day that you are not using this simple memorization system, you are literally stealing from yourself the joy of being able to recall an abundance of legal terminology as you easily expand the natural abilities of your mind.
